The reality of the so-called “silver economy” brings countless possibilities, starting with the careful evaluation of brands, which come to understand the economic potential of older people in the consumer market. However, it is a scenario that also raises concerns, especially for women. In view of this, the U+ Festival proposes to discuss the main challenges and opportunities for this age group.
Issues such as sexuality and maturity will be the agenda of the project’s launch event in a panel led by specialists Juliana Schulze, Ana Canosa and guest Isabel Dias.
“We are experiencing the silver economy boom in the world (a set of products and services that serve people 50+). Our movement aims to impact 20 million women in Brazil by March 2023. It is necessary to give voice, understand and meet the demands of these women who still feel invisible to brands.”, says Bete Marin, co-founder of the U+ Festival.
